I understand it's perspective / projection distortion of wide angle lens
- nothing special to digital camera. See some of my wide angle shots
showing this effect / distortion (all 21mm shots on 35mm film): (*)

I often see this in my photos because I use 21mm as wide angle, 35mm as
normal and 50mm as a tele lens. 75 is super-tele for me!
